CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - Shire Notices and Government Updates

COVIDSafe Tracing App

A new app has been developed by the Government to trace positive and potential COVID-19 cases.

Downloading the app is voluntary, but highly recommended by the Chief Medical Officer. The app's success is based on how many Australians use it.

The app works by using Bluetooth on your smart phone to log who you have been in close contact with, and will alert you if you have come into contact with anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 (if they are also using the app).

The information is stored locally on your phone and only accessible by State and Territory Health Officials. Most personal information is not required by the app, only names, phone numbers, post codes etc.

It can be found on the App Store for iPhone and on Google Play for Android. Search for 'COVIDSafe'.
